Thanksgiving and Christmas are the busiest travel holidays of the year. This is no surprise, but a statistic that is changing is how many people travel with their pets. The percentage has drastically increased in the last decade. With that being said, up next in our 12 Days of Holiday Planning for Pet Parents blog series is holiday pet travel tips. Whether you’re bringing your dog to visit family or you have to leave them at a dog boarding facility, I have some useful tips and advice for you!
We love NomNomNow. I was introduced to the brand almost two years ago and it’s still my favorite fresh pet food delivery service. (Later I will share with you what makes them stand out among other companies). NomNomNow started as a homemade dog food delivery service but now they offer cat food, too! They make it convenient for me to order food for ALL of my kids. With NomNomNow you can get your pet on a healthier, happier diet with the convenience of delivery. Plus I’m offering 20% off for you to get started!
I think as pet parents we can all agree that safety is always top priority for our pets. Often when I think of Christmas and the holiday season, I rarely think of the multitude of risks that come along with it. We’re so caught up in a holly jolly Christmas, that we forget about the dangers it can pose. Sounds silly, right? Well, not for our fur babies. The fireplace, Christmas lights and tinsel can put us at the vet’s office too quickly, so it’s important that we’re mindful throughout the season. I’ve compiled a holiday pet safety guide to get you and your fur friends through Thanksgiving and Christmas without any emergencies. This blog post is the first of twelve in our 12 Days of Holiday Planning for Pet Parents.
I’d be willing to bet that most pet parents have unused pet items laying around. Whether it’s food, toys, blankets or beds, you probably have something that would be better suited in the hands of a different person or animal! I enjoy de-cluttering my home, and a few times a year I do a major pet product purge. So if you have stood there asking yourself the question “what can I do with unused pet items?” I have some suggestions for you.
I cannot begin to find words which appropriately express my gratitude and appreciation for those who came forward to help me with vet bills after Wynston’s attack on November 1st. Not only did I raise $200 to cover initial expenses, but I ended up receiving enough donations to pay for a $550 vet bill which followed just days later. I personally feel like “thank you” is not enough, so I want to dedicate this blog post to the 29 donors who stepped up to assist me during such a difficult time. I list every patron’s name in this post, as my way of recognizing those who helped.
